IMAG9449 flyerStarbucks is partnering with the United Way to host a sock drive for the homeless.  If you’re in Seattle, between now and March 24, 2014, bring clean, new socks to any participating Starbucks store. (Generally that means all company-operated locations.) This morning, I noticed that the Sixth and Union Starbucks had a basket for socks. I will be sure to drop by tomorrow with some newly-purchased socks! As I’ve already mentioned, the socks will be distributed to homeless persons via the United Way partnership.

I like this kind of partnership and hope that if you happen to be in Seattle, you’ll donate some socks too. By the way, I love hearing about this kind of thing, so please let me know if your neighborhood stores are involved in good community activities.
